Donated by Takao Hamamoto
Hiroto Hamamoto was exposed to the bombing at his home in Kako-machi. Although he was buried under his collapsed home, he got out of there after breaking roof tiles. A few days later, he picked up bones of his son Takanori at the ruins of the burned-down home. He died without ever speaking of his son’s death.
